    Why APC is not celebrating

    Tell me where APC won that it had not always won since 1999?
    There’s no surprise in any result so far released or posted here.
    None of the results shows ANY outstanding performance by APC.
    Instead, it’s a bad performance by APC for losing by 90% in the east.

      No baby, it shows how BACKWARD the East is. From now on the EAST should Please shut up on any claim to be cosmopolitan and “republican”. If any nation in Nigeria will claim that cosmopoplitan and democratic ethic in Nigeria it is the west. All parties have significant votes in Yoruba. And that shows the democratic spirit of the Yorubas!!! So shut up! Leave with your in-wardness. Never again must you boast of being widely traveled and cosmopolitan!
